This class is designed for mobile children (crawlers/walkers up to 3 years) along with at least one loving caregiver. All are welcome—parents, nannies, other family members and friends. We will move, sing and play together to boost social and physical development. Tots are natural yogis and we will follow their lead as they explore their unique expression of movement. Grown-ups can expect to participate. No prior yoga or fitness experience is necessary. Mats are optional.
